Mark Sanford Asked Ex-Wife To Run His Campaign
Former South Carolina Mark Sanford bizarrely asked his ex-wife to run his campaign for Congress:
And you thought your relationship with your ex was complicated: New York magazine reports that while former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and his ex-wife Jenny have barely spoken since their bitter divorce three years, he recently asked her to run his congressional campaign. “I could pay you this time,” the magazine reports he told her.
Jenny Sanford ran all of her husband’s campaigns, starting with his first 1994 bid for Congress. The partnership, naturally, fell apart after his affair with an Argentine journalist went public in 2009. She passed up the chance to run for the open congressional seat herself.
Needless to say, she said no.
